Subject: minutes and call info - metamodel mtg.

Minutes from Metamodel meeting 10/2/2000


1.   Review of context matrix, and identification of metamodel element
representing each context 

2.   Discussion of plans for arriving at XML representation for business
processes defined against the metamodel

2.a. Identification of minimal required content of an XML document
representing a business process in order for it to be the functional basis for
deriving a Trading Partner Profile (i.e. half of a Trading Partner Agreement) 

2.b. Discussion of use of XMI

3.   Feedback from last weeks walk-through of the AIAG example expressed as a
model against the metamodel.

We went over the table of contexts with Jim Clark's annotations of meta model
elements. Bill McCarthy and Bob Haugen to update document with comments and
corrections, and to work with Jim Clark to update metamodel where required.

We discussed classification schemes. Reg/Rep model of a hierarchy of
classifiers and a type of relationship called classification appears to cover
all the needs.  However, it is unclear who in BP/CC is responsible for
providing list of possible values for these classifiers. Sharon said that this
was up to trade/industry bodies. But we at least need examples.

We discussed XML formats. Antoine had been working on conversion to XMI of
example activity diagram and sequence diagram. Antoine sent the resulting XMI
to the ccbp-context list. These XMI documents will be discussed at Tuesday's
meatamodel meeting. There was a comment that perhaps the recommended XML
format is a TA issue. Antoine will contact Duane.

Sharon asked whether ebXML would/should provide stylesheets to convert the
contents of a BP model to html. Group agreed that that is not in scope for BP
team. However, we will see what  Sig Handelman and POC comes up with.

We discussed BP relation to TPA. Question of 'what comes first' the BP or the
TPP. In all industry standard scenarios BP comes first, TPP is derived and
augmented. In the more entrepreneurial .com world TPP's might come first, and
BP becomes an assembly of existing TPP's. We agreed to focus on the former
scenarios for now. Bob pointed out that the core process work migh also
provide a bottom-up or middle-up approach where you build bigger processes
from core processes.

We solicited feedback on last week's review of AIAG example. None offered.
Karsten to schedule to schedule the review of the FSV layer. We need access to
the actual .mdl model, not just the .doc specification document.

Next meeting October 10. at 9 am PST, 12 pm EST.

Preliminary agenda:
Review of XMI documents.
Attempt to settle on XML format for POC.
Discussion of BP elements needed for TP.
Discussion of Partner definition.
Scheduling of FSV review.
Process for review of metamodel.
